What Sets Penn's Neuro-Ophthalmology Group Apart?
Neuro-ophthalmology at Penn is unique because:
1) the faculty are available to see patients seeking neuro-ophthalmic consultation throughout the entire medical center: The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Scheie Eye Institute, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, VA Medical Center, and Pennsylvania Hospital.
2) the resources (expertise, testing) of both the Penn Neurology and Ophthalmology Departments as well as the entire medical center are available for patient care.
